About the IASP

The International Association for Scottish Philosophy (IASP) is a joint initiative of Edinburgh University Press and the Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy at the University of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

It has three main aims:

  1. to support an interesting, informative and developing website devoted to all aspects of the Scottish philosophical tradition
  2. to provide a web-based platform for scholars and societies to reach a global readership,
  3. to enable individuals to purchase the Journal of Scottish Philosophy at a heavily discounted price, as well as discounts on other relevant purchases.

The IASP’s role is entirely that of a facilitator. It does not organize its own conferences or produce its own publications and it freely advertizes the activities and publications of anyone and everyone engaged in the study of the Scottish Philosophical tradition and its history.

To become a member of the International Association for Scottish Philosophy, please visit the membership page.

Membership is free, but brings the opportunity of a heavily discounted individual subscription to the Journal of Scottish Philosophy as well as other special offers available only to members.

The IASP will not compete with any other group or society devoted to promoting any aspect of the Scottish Philosophical tradition. Its sole purpose  is to serve their interests.
